24TH – SATURDAY 30TH SEPTEMBER 2017
The key annual activity of the SSPA is the National Convention. This year we are celebrating the convention’s 50th Anniversary in the Hunter Valley. The convention is devoted to supporting short statured people and their families; with a focus on empowering short statured people for the betterment of both the individual and society. All short statured individuals do ‘look different’, not only do they have to navigate in a world built for 6 foot individuals, they have to contend on a daily basis with a society that places great emphasis on appearance. The National Convention gives short statured people and their families an opportunity so socialise, learn and develop themselves. With the 50th anniversary of our first convention, this year is going to be a big celebration and is one not to be missed.
